We are announcing the second Call for Papers for the WIF panel at the South Central Modern Language Association 2020 conference at the Whitehall Hotel in Houston, Texas, October 8-10, 2020. This year's theme is "Politics of Protest," but you may propose a paper on any topic related to the study of French and Francophone women authors, the study of women's place in French and Francophone cultures or literature, and/or feminist literary criticism. If there is sufficient interest, SCMLA will allow us to have 2 sessions.
The deadline for all abstracts has been extended. Please send a 250-300 word abstract in French or English on any topic by April 10, 2020 to the Chair: Theresa Kennedy, Baylor University, (Theresa_Kennedy@baylor.edu).
